How is it that the days/weeks are going by so fast? Every day it is the same routine. Get up, drink coffee, go run, and start work. As much as I am tired of working from home, gosh, I am also saving so much time and money.
This week I got my new watch. I thought the paces were off in my 225 so I ordered the 235 from Amazon. It turns out the paces were correct. This new watch gives me new features such as race predictors, run indoors, and VO2 Max. I love the color too. Not sure how accurate the race predictors are but they gave me hope for some nice PRs next year.
This week I had some easy runs along with a mix of half mile intervals and another progressive run. Oh and I ran 4.8 miles on Friday for my birthday. It was actually warm on Friday and I even ran in shorts. In previous years it’s either been cold or I’ve run in the snow. My coach left it up to me to do whatever workout I wanted to do. I just chose to run easy and by feel.
Today’s 4.5 miles went well. It wasn’t cold and I did get a little too warm. These past few days I’ve noticed some tightness in my chest which is mostly likely due to anxiety. I’ve never had this happen to me. At least I don’t remember. Let’s hope I can relax and take it easy this week.
Of course this does not help.
Just want to share these pictures because it makes me smile. I rarely see them together because Lola cannot stand Mateo. She is always growling and hissing when he comes near her.
Oh and no school drama. Whew, what a relief. I kept reminding my students that we only have school on Monday and Tuesday and then we will be off the rest of the week for Thanksgiving. They had asked me if one day we could have lunch together. Isn’t that sweet? So, that is what we will be doing on Tuesday. We will have lunch together, watch a movie, and play some games.
That is all for this week. The most exciting things were my new watch and my birthday!
